On a leftover parcel near the United States-Mexico border, the Tesoro Grove development is constrained by a freeway, a pump station and the backs of adjacent properties. In response to this setting, Studio E Architects located buildings to de-fine plazas, common areas and a large community lawn linked by an internal street that creates a continuous and legible open space network. Porches, terraces and stoops give individual residences a safe-yet-engaged community relationship.
